AHMED MADRALLI BIDS
F0K FAME AS A WBESTLEB
Out of the sultan's domains, al
ways famous for its mat artists, has
come a wrestler who, in the opinion
of many experts, bids fair to become
the greatest the world ha. ever seen.
Ahmed Madralli is his name.
i nine most or tne inrKs who nave
visited this country, he is not a giant.
Though of large proportions and re
markably strong. Madralli is not un
usual either in hi.c or strength.
Ihe Turk's first appearance outside
of his own country was in England a
snort tune ago. ins tame had pre
ceded him and, he was matched with
Tom Cannon, the famous English
wrestler. The bout took place in Lon
The match w:;s at mixed styles, best
two in. three falls prevailing. Cannon
was allowed to name the style in
which each bout, should le contested.
Madralli won the first two falls, the
first in eleven minutes and nineteen
seconds, and the second in one minute
and thirty eight seconds. When the
match was over Cj:mion said:
"In my 25 years experience in Eu
rope, America end Australia, I have

mat. He bids fair to prove the pre
mier grappler of the world."
Besides possessing remarkable
strength. Madralli is quick and clever.
He is ready for an opponent's every
move, and sooner or later lures his
opponent into a position which gives
him a chance to obtain a deadly hold.
Madralli wrestles with his head as well
as with his legs "nd arms.
Madralli will be the third Turkish
wrestler to tour the world. Yousouf
was the pioneer lernuie iutk.
He met and defeated all the noted
wrestlers of this country m rather
handy fashion, Tom Jenkins, of Cleve
land, being the only American to put
up a fast bout.
Yousouf was a giant, being more
than six feet high and weighing in
the neighborhood of 2M pounds.
He was succeeded by a much larger
and a much better Turkish wrestler
in the person of Nouroulah.
He weighed more than 3j0 pounds
and stood 6 feet and 7 inches in his
In St. Louis he threw Chrrley Witt
iner twice in less than five minutes
Later he went to New York and de
feated America's best wrestler, Tom
Jenkins, twice in nine minutes.
If Madralli is as good as either You
souf or Nouroulah, the American
wrestlers are due to another dumping
in the mat.

other life last evening, when William

was cut in two above the waist line
and his head was crushed in. He was
38 years of aire and leaves a wife to
mourn his death.
The deed was supposed by witnesses
to have been an accident caused by
xne man nipping me Train to steal ai
ride. It was not until he was search
ed in the rooms of the Boies under
taking parlors that it was established
that he had done the deed or his own
will. A letter found in an inner pock
et of his coat explains the motive in i
the following terms:
"Tell my dear little wife that while
I am sleeping in the ground 1 will love
her, and tell her to have her button
put on my coat when 1 am placed in
my coffin, and tell her to put that
ring she gave me on my finger, and
tell her that I will love her forever;

The better class of drujrpists, everywhere, are men of scientific nttainments and high integrity,
who devote their lives to the welfare of their fellow men in supplying the best of remedies and
purest medicinal agents of known value, in accordance with phvsicians' prescriptions and
scientific formula. Druggists of the better class manufacture many excellent remedies, but
always under original or officinal names and they never sell false brands, or imitation medicines.
They are the men to deal with when in need of anything in their line, which usually includes
all standard remedies and corresponding adjuncts'of a first-class pharmacy and the finest and"
best of toilet articles and preparations and many useful accessories and remedial appliances.
The earning of a fair living, with the satisfaction which arises from a knowledge of the benefits
conferred upon their patrons and assistance to the medical profession, is usually their greatest
reward for.long years of study and many hours of daily toil. They all know that Syrup of
Figs is an excellent laxative remedy and that it gives universal satisfaction, and therefore they
are selling many millions of bottles annually to the well informed purchasers of the choicest
remedies, and they always take pleasure in handing out the genuine article bearing the full
namo of the Company California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of every package.
They know that in cases of colds and headaches attended by biliousness and constipation and
of weakness or torpidity of the liver and bowels, arising from irregular habit?, indigestion, or
over-eating, that there is no other remedy so pleasant, prompt and' beneficial in its effects as
Syrup of Figs, and the' are glad to sell it because it gives universal satisfaction.
Owing to the excellence of Syrup of Figs, the universal satisfaction which it gives and the
immense demand for it, imitations have been made', tried and condemned, but there are
individual druggists to be found, here ami there, who do not maintain the dignity and principles
of the profession and whose greed gets the better of their judgment, and who do not hesitate
to recommend and try to sell the imitation's in order to make a larger profit. Such preparations
sometimes have the name " Syrup of Figs" or "Fig Syrup" and of some piratical concern,
or fictitious fig syrup company, printed on the packagebut they never have the full name of
the Company California Fig Syrup Co. -printed on the front of the package. The imitations
should be rejected because they are injurious to the system. In order to sell the imitations
they find it necessary to resort to misrepresentation or deception, and whenever a dealer pasBes
off on a customer a preparation under the name of "Syrup of Figs" or ''Fig Syrup," which
does not bear the full name of the California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of the package,
he is attempting to deceive and mislead the patron who has been so unfortunate as to enter his
establishment, whether it be large or small, for if the dealer resorts to misrepresentation and
and deception in one case he will do so with other medicinal agents, and in the filling of
physicians' prescriptions, and should be avoided by every one who values health and happiness.
Knowing that the great majority of druggists are reliable, we supply the immense demand
for our excellent remedy entirely through the druggists, of whom it may be purchased every
where, in original packages only, at the regular price of fifty cents per bottle, but as exceptions
exist it is necessary to inform the public of the facts, in order that all may decline or return
any imitation which may be sold to them. If it does not bear the full name of the Company
California Fig Syrup Co. printed on the front of every package, do not hesitate to return the
article and to demand the return, of your money, and in future go to one of the better class of
druggists wao will sell you
